Paul Nagle is all set for a happy homecoming when he moves into his brand new apartment at Woodlands, Taylor Wimpeys sought-after development in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead.

A new job means the 34-year-old is returning to his hometown of Hemel after some years away working in Milton Keynes and living in Leighton Buzzard. Knowing the Hertfordshire town well, it didnt take Paul long to find his dream home.

As soon as I found out about Woodlands, I knew I wanted to live there, he says.

Its in Boxmoor, which is often referred to as Boxmoor village, and it does have that really nice village feel to it.

Its one of the nicest areas in the town, with some great bars and pubs, and is only a 10-minute walk to the railway station and town centre.

A major attraction for me is the fact Woodlands is on the doorstep of the canal, which is great for walking and cycling. Within 10 minutes of getting home after work, I can be changed and on the towpath, enjoying the outdoor life.

Paul, who moves into his brand new one-bedroom apartment in January, will be making the most of the fantastic location as he will have plenty of leisure time on his hands.

My new workplace will be just five minutes by car on a good day, so my commute is minimal, explained the Operations Manager for electrical retailing group DSGI.

But Im also relishing the fact I will have no DIY to do when I move in.

Having bought an ex-rental flat some years ago, and spending eight weeks stripping it out and doing it up, I know its something I dont particularly want to do again!

Buying a brand new Taylor Wimpey apartment off-plan is perfect for me, as I have been able to choose the kitchen and bathroom I want and the type of flooring.

All I will have to do is spend a weekend moving my furniture and belongings in and thats it.
